Thank you to my readers that responded to my request to help students go to the Cory Booker event. My readers bought tickets for 4 students. I appreciate your support. I think it is good that students are able to learn from a wide variety of people. I have recently taken students to listen to Donald Rumsfeld, Ari Fleischer , Jeb Bush, and Cory Booker.
It was an amazing night. I was able to bring 4 students to the rooftop of the London in Los Angeles. My students met Cory Booker, Eric Garcetti and Star Trek actor Chris Pine.
They were the only high school students I saw there. The place was full of business leaders and other professionals. My students were able to talk with leaders like Jodi Gomes and Farrah Gray.
The pictures they took with Cory Booker came out great. I am sure they will remember this night for a long time. Cory Booker is an inspiring speaker. He inspires me.
The picture at the top was taken by a student with an interest in film. It shows the reflection of Cory Booker with Eric Garcetti over the Los Angeles skyline.
Thank you to Paula Day Williams, Shanna Sarris and the other donor for helping. My students and I appreciate it. I will make it worth it by encouraging them to stay involved.
